Description

A rich and flavoursome Shiraz displaying all the hallmarks of the varietal: vibrant red fruits, dark plum and spice with underlying soft tannins.

Containing some of the higher, cooler vineyard sites in New South Wales, the Central Ranges is an important and recently designated wine-growing zone. It is sometimes better known for the regions it comprises: running north to south along the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range (and in descending order of size): Mudgee, Orange and Cowra

Bob Oatley’s mantra is that all wines should be a “”darned good drink””, and the high quality Signature Series delivers immediate appeal, with satisfying flavours over an elegant frame. Each wine embodies the grape varietal and region in which it was grown.

Oatley’s Signature range is gathering critical acclaim for displaying true varietal and regional expression, these understated wines, pure in character and flavour profile are the antithesis of the old overblown, heavy Aussie wines….here’s the new beginning
